Aaron Lanton interrupted ritual portrayal disregarded and discredited!

//   18 dicembre 2019   // 0 Commenti

On every Low Key episode, your hosts Keith Dennie, Aaron Lanton and me discuss pop-culture moments we think others may have missed, often through a racial lens. The film follows a couple whose first date is interrupted by a bad traffic stop that turns into a road trip for justice.

Keith mostly embrace Queen and Slim, but Aaron says plot issues kept taking him out of the story. He also wonders—and we all discuss—whether the film overgeneralizes in its portrayal of how black people would respond to Queen and Slim.

She’d already been warned by her team that the membership of Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., comprised of about 90 international journalists who vote on the Golden Globes, had skipped multiple screenings of “Queen & Slim” that had been set for them.

“We held three screenings for the HFPA and almost no members attended,” Matsoukas told Variety. “For me, it’s reflective of their voting body. It’s not reflective of the society in which we live in or the industry as it stands today. They don’t value the stories that represent all of us, and those stories are so often disregarded and discredited, as are their filmmakers.”
